It's been almost a month to the day, but I've finally got around to watching that Seth Rogan podcast with Neil deGrasse Tyson. And as promised--my thoughts regarding "the level of snark".

I'm guessing you're used to watching him on his Star Talk TV show and not the podcast by the same name...and I'm guessing the TV show on National Geographic gets a lot more editing than the podcast. Because I haven't really seen anything surprising on the podcast (Seth Rogan's, that is)--I thought it was all par for the course.

If someone disagrees with him, or he asks a question and he's not satisfied with the answer, or he's being asked a question that he feels is worded in such a way that he feels he's being cornered...he's not afraid to make his stand, and won't put up with things hosts on mainstream shows might ask or say to him. If he goes on the defensive, or even on the offensive, he'll tell the other person exactly why. I like that a lot, and I think this is when he's the most interesting. A lot of interviewers/interviewees avoid that.
